If you had asked how to make a richer cup, I would have recommended you use a finer grind. If you really do want a more acidic coffee (an unusual request), increase your steep time and/or your water temperature. Also, simply try more grind. You might like the resulting richer flavor.

When it tips it has a tendency to lose the air seal and even allow liquid to leak past the seal. This could be solved by adding 4 veins, or ribs that have a close fit to the cylinder, running lengthwise along the outside of the plunger and keep it in perfect alignment. I know making a new die is an expensive proposition, but at whatever time you make a new model you might consider adding this feature. Have you already considered this option and rejected it for reasons I can't forsee? – From David C.
